Question Fitting K&N Conical Filter.

Hi experts....

I got K&N conical filter-RC 3600 for my palio 1.2 sport.
Got the filter alone for 4.5k, without flange.

I got it fitted today from a local workshop with a fabricated flange(Iam not sure if it can be called flange).
I feel a light change in the air induction sound and some improvement in perfomance at speeds above 70kmph

I've uploaded the image.

Is the installation okay/correct??
Plz shower in ur suggestions.

Well its not just a local workshop, Its 'My TVS'

What I was suggest frm Methodsonline for my Xing

the suitable filter is RU-3550 (Rs. 3190/-)
The intake pipe is Rs. 1100/-
The flange is Rs. 1400/-

hello.. umm can you post some better pics.. but from what i can see the intake pipe and flange are not correct.. get the original ones from k & n.. they are matched to give the best performance..
hope this helped..

Sorry to say this,

Its definetly a bad job, You get better intake pipe, this custom made is pretty bad and also might affect your performance. With quality pipe you can feel the difference in performance

RF-1049, RU4950 fits Palio atleast thats what Methods recommend. Always buy your airfilter from an authorized dealer. You get warranty and they do correct installation.

RF1049 and RU4950 are part numbers. These filters are specifically designed for certain cars. You cannot just fit any filter. RU-3550 for example is a smaller filter and it fits a santro, zen, alto. The difference between the two filters is that RF1049 requires a flange and RU4950 requires a s.s.pipe. Just different type of installation.

A much clearer image

I understand that the work is poor one.

i should have made the flange with an uniform diameter pipe rather than doing a conical shaped adaptor.

Hope that this is wat u guys have meant by "bad work"

Suggestions............plz

after fitting the filter, the engine has become a bit more revv friendly.
Nice induction roar.
Ofcourse top speed has increased.
Waiting eagerly to check the average.. :-)

Drive Safe
